Why study it and what skills does it develop?
By learning a foreign language, you give yourself the chance to see the world in a different way. You can explore a new culture and access films, plays and books as they were meant to be seen and read. You will also increase your employability as there is always a demand for people who can speak more than one language across a very wide range of careers. In this course, you will develop your knowledge of the Spanish language and culture
Knowledge of a foreign language is ever more valuable in an increasingly connected world. Many employers look for knowledge of at least one other language across a wide range of jobs. Understanding a language is a first step to understanding a people and a culture. Another language enables you to enjoy everything from a casual conversation to a classic novel as it was meant to be read. It also provides a means by which to reflect upon your own culture and gain a deeper understanding of your mother tongue. An A level is typically a prerequisite for studying the language at university.
What prior knowledge and skills are required?
You need an interest in languages and the culture of another country and its people.
You should ideally have an A or A* at GCSE. If it is your mother tongue or a second language, you will need to be able to speak and write it proficiently. You will also need an interest in other cultures and a logical mind to cope with the grammar.
“As a parent that had struggled with my son’s A-level education, I was relieved to find London Brookes College. It was the only College that offered what my son needed. They helped him prepare for two A-levels and one AS in one year. I must say that I found the staff very, very friendly in all departments who really went out of their way to help him with his unique needs. Needless to say, the teachers were excellent and always approachable. With the college support as well as support from home, my son’s life has completely turned around. He was deemed a failure by a state school and was told to do an apprenticeship which made him very depressed. Thanks to London Brookes College he is now completely transformed child and extremely happy to get a place at a very good university. I found the fees to be quite reasonable and flexible in terms of the level of support you need and can afford. Certainly worth every penny.THANK YOU ALL AT LONDON BROOKS COLLEDGE. Eternally Grateful Parent.”
